Training Description

This sixteen hour (2 day) hands-on training develops the technical skills necessary for modeling commercial and multifamily buildings in eQUEST following requirements of ASHRAE Standard 90.1 2013 Appendix G with Addendum BM package, and 90.1 2016 Appendix G, as used in NYS ECCC 2016, ENERGY STAR Multifamily High Rise Program, Enterprise Green Communities, LEED NC v4 Pilot Credit (former Energy and Atmosphere Credit 1 and Prerequisite 2), and various other programs for green buildings. The case study involves a mixed use multifamily building, and covers the efficient work flow, productivity tips, and quality control.

Day 1: After a brief introduction to Appendix G and an overview of the key features of eQUEST, participants will work on a case study involving a mixed use multifamily building. We will start by importing CAD drawings into a simulation file, and then cover the various input and reporting requirements of Appendix G as applied to the case study relying on eQUEST’s Wizard Mode as a convenient method of data entry. Methods to convert available project data into eQUEST-friendly inputs will also be demonstrated.

Day 2: The second day will start with an introduction to eQUEST’s Detailed Mode. We will then fine tune the model developed on Day 1 using the detailed interface, and take advantage of the Parametric Runs functionality to complete the Appendix G baseline and proposed models. Additional topics will include model quality assurance and troubleshooting, strategies to increase modeling productivity, and documenting results following LEED requirements. Class size is limited to 25 people, with two instructors, one of whom helps individuals with exercise.

Target Audience

The training targets professionals with architectural, engineering, or construction backgrounds who would like to develop or enhance their energy modeling skills to perform energy modeling for new construction projects for programs such as LEED NC, as well as those who desire a more in depth understanding of ASHRAE Standard 90.1 Appendix G and the related modeling process in order to review energy model submittals for new construction projects or work with modelers more effectively on a team.

Possible attendees also include professionals who want to acquire this marketable skill in order to seek career advancement and new employment opportunities, and individuals preparing for the ASHRAE Building Energy Modeling Professional (BEMP) certification.

Learning Objectives


1) Bring a laptop computer that has eQUEST installed. eQUEST is free and can be downloaded here. Note that this training uses version 3.65 of eQUEST.

You must have admin privileges on your computer in order to install the software. It will greatly streamline the training if you ensure that the software is installed and working.

2) For the hands-on exercises, it will be helpful for you to have the paper or electronic copy of ASHRAE 90.1 2013.
